done by a john mccain republican surrogate named mitt romney. >> inside a campaign, what do you get on the inside that we don't get on the outside because you're doing your own polling? >> you see the widest array of polls. you look at mason dixon that cake out yesterday. you take that apart, it's close to the internal polls. it shows that john mccain is leading in the states that he's got to lead in. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we have a good shot in virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada, that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. we're excited. we're hoping to see a lot of people out there in chicago on election night with barack obama experiencing a long, cold night, that john mccain won. >> it's nice he wishes physical discomfort on his enemies. but notice what exactly he was so confidently predicting there. the day before the election in 2008, it was mitt romney. these were his predictions for states that john mccain was definitely going to win. >> john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we'll pick up pennsylvania. we t
and colorado. using the latest jobs report to make his argument that america needs a change. john roberts is live in inglewood where governor romney is expected to make his final campaign stop of the day. >> reporter: good afternoon to you. this is the time in the election campaign when those of us like to call it death march into tuesday. both campaigns pulling out all the stops doing whatever they can to try to woo over the late decided voters. governor romney on the stomp in iowa saying he has the experience to turn the economy around saying the president has failed to meet the challenge fay can the united states. >> the difference between us, he makes promises and he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: president obama meantime, continuing down the path you can't trust governor romney. that he is misleading american people, imploring to give him another four years to get the economy on track. now is not the time to be changing horses. >> after four years of president you know me. you may not a
the first debate. john king has been looking at the latest numbers. what else does it tell you? >> it's important to look at this poll. thest a small lead. that's yet another poll the president's kept that narrow lead in ohio. you mentioned the horse race. here's one of the biggest factors. in a battleground state like this, the president's getting the democrats, romney's getting a republicans, the candidate who wins among independents is likely to win. that is critical the watch in the last week to election day. there's also an age divide. it's important as well. you see a huge leap for the president. 56-38, among voters under 50. that's an important part of his constituency. republicans need the older voters by 2i-46. governor romney would like that to be bigger. there's also a racial and gender gap, if you will. i want to put it this way. the president is, if he is above 40% in the white vote, he tends to win a state because of the demographics like ohio. you see them here, 41% of white men, 46% of white women. if the president can hold those numbers, it's most likely he would hang
thain wilbur ross, and john catsmatidis. he said he needs to do more than save america but save america's soul. >> you're going to save america's soul using those fat cat bankers those ass who ruined our economy. who are you going to vote for unless you want to do the exact opposite than those idiots did when they crashed the economy in 2008. look at these numbers. these are amazing. s&p 500 up 80%. dow jones up 70%. that is the fifth best equivalent period since 1900. so terrific in that regard. how about corporate profits they're through the roof. under obama 77.9% increase. they have to be ecstatic with obama. but they're not. it's never enough. more more, more, more. and obama has the nerve to once slightly criticize them. this is what he said. >> did i not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on wall street. >> cenk: oh, my god how can he call them fat cats! you are fat cats! even if you think you're doing the right thing you're enormously wealthy. that's what a fat cat is. boo-hoo their feelings were hurt. the business who gave president obama $14.5 million
mitt romney's numbers. romney leads the president with white men 66% to 32%, a 34-point lead. john mccain's lead among white men four years ago was half that. >> mitt romney may have a hard time relating to voters, but he is dialed into white men. they are very much attuned to what he is saying about the economy. >> reporter: in fact, in contrast to the president and that mtv town hall, his visits, like the one to "the view," romney sending his wife, ann, instead. his own appearances carefully courting his base. a dozen appearances this year alone with popular conservative host sean hannity. and in canton, ohio, tonight, supporters here hopeful they can overcome the president's small, but stubborn, lead here. the one thing he says that resonates the most? >> resonates most? jobs. >> reporter: jobs, economy, we hear that so much, diane. and with that gender gap among men helping mitt romney, that's why the obama campaign focusing so much on undecided women who very much could hold the key now to a second term for barack obama. diane? high stakes on both sides. >> all right. yeah, david

have given in to mitch mcconnell and john boehner. anything they wanted, boys. of course, they wanted to defeat president obama from the start, but despite their obstruction, unemployment has fallen to the lowest point since president obama's first month in office. today, job numbers closed the chapter of president obama's first term, and his economic agenda. it's worked. but if you need to be reminded of where this country was when he took office, just listen to house democratic leader nancy pelosi from my radio show today. >> four years ago in september, when president bush was president, and on september 18th when i had the chairman of the fed and the secretary of the treasury and others in my office, democrats and republicans, house and senate leadership, the chairman of the fed said if we do not act immediately, we will not have an economy by monday. are we better off today than we were four years ago? our country absolutely is. can it be better for many of america's families? absolutely and it would have been if the republicans had not obstructed. >> the president and the democr

political weekend before the election on tuesday, we talk with john dickerson the political director of cbs news. >>hio is still the granddaddy of them all. governor romney's going there the most of all the battleground state, the same with the president. right now you would have to say that the president has the better electoral map, the polls in more battleground states are favouring him. but romney is doing better in north carolina and florida, and on the early vote he's doing well in those states, doing well in colorado. but the president is doing well in iowa an nevada with the early vote which tells us a little bit how this thing is starting to break. >> we close this evening with this qstio what is the impact of the digital revolution on books, writers and publishing. joining me ken auletta, tim o reilly, jonathan safran foer an jane frieman. >> i like the idea of ebooks how they can democratize books. ma what i am afraid of is on platforms that have distracks an are inherently fast makes it harder to make books books. >> it is so important to have historical perspective. you know wh

an act -- >> barnyard expressions, not that they aren't important here, but polirtico, john demartin had a story about an aide to joe biden, he had been involved. who writes a back called the payoff that is negative on joe biden. no coverage whatsoever. book came out in september. it has been completely ignored. i have to ask myself if this had been about paul ryan, what do you think the chances would have ignored it for one month. >> jon: then the president's interview schedule the hard hitting mtv network as well at jay leno. >> it does not speak well of the media. toughest interview had was with univision. what is everybody else. >> on friday, president did a series of radio interviews and mitt rom stayed off for two weeks. >> what your children on halloween. >> coming up. hot topic button issue abortion. >> certainly i did not intend that god pushes people to rai7. >> he makes headlines over his view on abortion. why is there a media double standard when it comes to religious beliefs and other hot button issues. the answer is next on news watch. and to meet the needs of my growing bu
my good friend ali velshi, cnn's chief business correspondent and john avlon is there with him as well. you have to go back to 1960 until you find the last time the winner of ohio did not end up in the white house. unemployment rate in ohio 7%, guys, below the national average. it was 8.6 president when president obama took office and shot up to more than 10%. ali, that looks like a positive trend for the president. how does governor romney make the case that it would get way better way sooner if ohio makes a change for romney, ali? >> well, he does it by approximating to some degree. he does it by saying this state has prospered under a republican governor. look, this is a state that is split. it's a virtual dead heat. obama's got a bit of a lead, but as you know it's within that statistical margin of error so it could be a few points off one way or the other. it will come down to who comes out to vote. the last few days will be about encouraging those who have already decided. there's very little left in terms of evidence as to what you could do to possibly tell people i'm yo
's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up substantially, or more importantly if the 171,000 jobs weren't created. the expectation was for 125,000 jobs. as long as he cleared that, he was going to be okay. barack obama gets more out of it. as you can see, he's not emphasizing the unemployment rate when he's speaking. mitt romney is doing that math that doesn't work thing again. barack obama said that the unemployment was going to be this and now it is this and as a result 9 million people are out of work. that's just not math that works. i don't think either of them are convincing anybody right now. this could have hurt barack obama. it is not going to hurt him. i don't kno
, known for picking winners. i went to franklin county, central part of the state with governor john kasich about his concerns. now we're in ham milton county, in cincinnati, ohio. voters in this election will come down yet again to one thing, the economy. >> if our government isn't leading by example then it doesn't set a good example for business to follow. bill: justin cooper runs the recycling business his great-grandfather started almost 90 years ago. his vote is all about his company. >> they said four for four years they will invest nor and more here at home and we haven't seen that. bill: cooper will vote for mitt romney. peggy shannon's cookie business is that rare example of a startup that is thrived in the great recession. after just two years, she is now moving to a larger building but the economy remains her concern. >> from a professional standard you think this is a pretty big investment. are we ever going to get our money back and i'm not sure actually but i think you have to have faith in the economy and faith in america. bill: she has a positive attitude during an e
controversial and divisive. >>> and people on the new jersey shore certainly need some support. john sady lives along the shore and he shot this cell phone video of the aftermath. take a look. >> that's the boardwalk two blocks in on central avenue. and that's where the boardwalk was on the ocean. >> and john is on the phone with us this morning. he's a business owner in seaside heights, new jersey, and lives in toms river. john, i was in your area this week. i'm so sorry for what you all are dealing with there. are the conditions any better now this morning for you? >> they're mixed. they're mixed. we are really happy with the response from the governor with the electoral department. we had people from alabama, atlanta, three tractor trailer loads, telephone polls went over thursday. that response has been outstanding. however, it's been a little slow, i would say, in the search for door-to-door to help some of these people. that has been a little bit embarrassing to the government. >> right after the storm actually happened, though, and came through there. you took in five local families. a l
the sniper shootings that left ten people dead in our area. >> now the ex-wife of convicted sniper john alan mohamed is speaking out about the attacks. mildred mohamed talks about how she is moving on from hardship to find hope. >> october 23rd atf knocked on my door to take me to the police station for questioning and that is when they told me they were going to name john as the sniper. that was also when mildred mohamed would learn her ex-husband was out to murder her and the ten innocent people who were killed were just a cover. >> so that he could come in as a grieving father and get custody of the children. >> reporter: mildred says john alan mohamed was psychologically abusive to her. after she left him he disappeared with their three young children. when she finally got them back a judge issued a restraining order against her ex-husband. mildred mohamed knew that if he saw her again he would kill her. >> he said you have become my enemy and as my enemy i will kill you. he said that right in my face. >> i think people would be surprised to know that other people have attacked you. >> t
has the overview. 179 lectorral votes and states john mccain carried. indiana and north carolina where he just barely carried and they will undoubtedly go republican. 25 votes between them. that brings you up to 204. then you have 51 votes in swing states that have at this point probably swung to romney. florida 29 votes where he is four or five ahead. virginia 13 where he is five or six ahead. and colorado 10 where he is four ahead. so that brings him up to 255. he has got to get to 270. so he is 15 short. then you have a market basket of 8 states that cast 98 elector aral votes where the polls are tied. new hampshire four votes. pennsylvania 20 votes, romney 2 ahead. ohio 18 votes. they are tied. iowa 6 votes, they are tied. wisconsin ten votes, they are are tied. michigan 15 votes, romney is one behind. minnesota 16 votes. romney is three behind. nevada 9 votes and romney s two behind. in all of those states obama is under 50. and so since we are going to get three quarters or four fifths of the undecided vote for romney i think romney has a good chance to win all those states but h
, with a clear set of convictions >> reporter: meanwhile, the romney campaign's national co-chair, john sununu, criticized them of using stereotypes. >> how lazy, detached he is. >> reporter: backing away from new comments on cnn's questioning why colin powell endorsed the president. >> when you take a look at colin powell is that an endorsement based on issues, or a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states. i applaud colin for standing with him. >> reporter: sununu released a statement, calling colin a friend, but not apologizing. i don't doubt that it was based on anything but the support of the president's policies. and we reached out to the romney campaign for comment, but they offered nothing in addition to sununu's statement. >> all right, peter in ohio, thank you, this brings us to our political director and chief white house correspondent, chuck todd. so chuck, this is the field in front of us, john sununu said that colin powe
the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after th
surrogates, john sununu made some comments when he suggested that colin powell was endorsing the president because of his race. sununu put out a statement saying he believes powell endorsed the president because of his policies. it's not just the tough talk on the campaign trail that we're seeing that is causing things to get a little rocky out here. there is also the prospect of a major storm heading to the east coast. what forecasters have dubbed frankenstorm. it has already caused the romney campaign to reschedule on sunday. no word on when it will be rescheduled. >> thanks very much. cnn's new poll shows a very tight race in the must-win state of ohio. president obama is at 50% and mitt romney is at 46%. i'm joined now by gloria borger and ryan lizza. thanks, guys. who's got the edge right now and we're getting closer and closer. >> it's hard to say. our head is exploding with all of these polls. but if you look at our -- let's take the state of ohio, which is of course so key to both campaigns. it's hard to see how romney would win the presidency without winning ohio, although they no
